As simulation software has become widespread, there are some common complaints from designers willing to optimise the way they use the software. Professional simulation software should address these issues. A lack of features that address these problems, or a lack of knowledge of those features, slows down the work and effectively adds a lot of cost to the use of simulation tools. This paper provides examples of two common methods for automating aspects of the design process.
